The results of a Culicine mosquito survey of the upper Limpopo River Valley are given in three tables, with a map to show the collecting points. Three vectors of yellow fever were encountered. The more important breeding places are discussed. Treeï¿½hole breeders, of which six species were found, apparently have the greatest breeding potential in this area. This mosquito survey forms part of a programme being carried out which will eventually cover the whole of the Union of South Africa in order to show the distribution of the culicine mosquito species to be found on the sub-continent.
